Is It Ever OK To Spank Your Kids?

By

parenting advice: spanking
Our expert offers a compelling answer to this long-debated parenting question.

What is much more common is that adults must do the work of healing those patterns from childhood when they learned to operate out of shame, fear and anxiety. Those patterns are never longterm solutions, and they must always be replaced with love and acceptance if we are to continue to grow as adults. Regarding the study above, I have more than one question: What is the life expectancy of those kids? What is their health like? Their marriages? Their children? As teens, I could see that they have learned to "convert" those needs for attachment into more socially acceptable behaviors and self beliefs. I'd love to see the results of this spanking "study" on a longer-term scale.

I provide healing for all manner of physical and emotional concerns using hypnotherapy to tap in to the power of the subconscious.  The body and mind are capable of healing themselves if we can just mobilize those internal resources and let our body tell us what it needs.  Commonly treated issues include smoking cessation, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
